Brief Project Description
Mercy Corps DRC has been operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) since August 2007, with a staff of around 500 people and programs focused on Eastern Congo in North and South Kivu, with the overall country goal to support vulnerable communities through crises, while fostering programs that build resilience and promote long-term change.
Mercy Corps DRC began the USAID-funded, Partnership for the Development of Eastern Congo (P-DEC) which adopts bottom-up peacebuilding approaches to reduce conflict and bridge social divisions. Through close partnerships with private energy sector actors, P-DEC will support the strengthening of the energy market, both as a sector (e.g. cooking, lighting, powering productive uses) and as a catalyst that underpins the development of selected agricultural value chains.
This request for application (RFA) is issued as a public notice to invite all interested, qualified, and eligible private sector companies to submit applications to partner with Mercy Corps to deploy the specified energy products and services. Please follow the Expression of Interest documents that can be found in French and English.
